Beware of Electron, while it's super easy to use for a JavaScript developer, it's a RAM and disk space-eater.

+80Mo of disk space for a compiled Electron app.

But by the way I love it! Great article and tutorial 😃

Thanks for reading :)

Yes, the size is an issue. The size is since it bundles Basic Chromium and NodeJS into the compiled app.

I guess for big apps it is fine. For example VS Code. But for small apps the size is too much
